Grey Goose Cherry Noir Congratulates the Rickey Smiley TV One Sitcom on Breaking Records for TV Opening Night
Last Monday Night’s Event was amazing and more than likely the publicity and buzz the party created hopefully led to the 900,000 viewers that tuned in last Monday night to make the Rickey SMiley Debut one of the highest rated viewings in the history of scripted TV shows to air on their network. Let’s flash back at last monday night. And special thanks to all the guests who shared with our host”Alexis Jones” how they like their grey goose cocktails.
According to Rodney Ho at the Atlanta Journal Constitution
Atlanta-based “The Rickey Smiley Show” sitcom drew about 900,000 viewers for its debut appearance on TV One Tuesday night over its first two episodes.
That isn’t all that impressive compared to shows like VH1’s “Love & Hop: Atlanta” or TLC’s “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” But for TV One, these are big numbers, the biggest debut in the history of the network.
Atlanta’s Roger Bobb, who produced the show and used to work with Tyler Perry, said oin an interview today that TV One has never gotten this type of market share before. “They’re extremely happy, as am I,” Bobb said.
He notes that these numbers aren’t as large as Perry’s sitcoms on TBS, but TBS is in nearly twice as many households. (TV One is seen in 57 million households vs. 100 million for TBS.)
Bobb also said Smiley’s acting improves steadily from episodes one to 10.
He is hopeful for a second season pickup but TV One has to see if the initial audience sticks around the next few weeks before it makes that commitment.
If Smiley gets a second season, it might be 13 or 26 episodes, not 90 like Perry wrangled from TBS and FX received from “Anger Management.”
